Is it interesting to know if people expect -h to work as a --help equivalent by default?
As it directly affects best practices of using Python in command line, can we run such poll on python.org? I thought that this stuff is obvious, but it appears that it is not, so I'd like to see this usability study - it will be interesting for the Python community to know itself better.
The argparse and optparse modules in the standard library expose help via both -h and --help by default (and this is in the Python documentation and in the help strings generated by those modules), so I would expect Python users at least to be familiar with both invocations:
